Ambrosia Announces Groundbreaking MAT Study

In partnership with Nova Southeastern University, Ambrosia will conduct a study on Gabapentin, a controversial medication used in addiction treatment.

For the first time, a groundbreaking new study is going to be conducted at a national treatment center. Ambrosia Treatment Center announced this month that they have been selected by Nova Southeastern University to participate in a cutting-edge drug study about the long-term effects of Gabapentin. Gabapentin, a drug for nerve pain, is administered by treatment centers across the nation to help clients suffering from the uncomfortable side effects of alcohol and cocaine withdrawal. If taken incorrectly, Gabapentin can be abused and hinder the recovery process. The study will be the first of its kind to see if the drug itself can be addictive.

“Gabapentin is a controlled substance, and we need to learn more about this drug so it can continue to be used positively and correctly for the future of our client’s long-term success,” says Ambrosia Treatment Center founder Jerry Haffey Sr. “We have never opened our doors to a study of this magnitude, but we believe the findings will help us and treatment centers across the country better understand this drug and continue to help clients recover from addiction properly.”

Nova Southeastern University will select 100 clients from Ambrosia Treatment Center’s three rehabs in Florida throughout the course of the year-long study to gain more insight on the effects of Gabapentin.

Treatment is for: Myself Loved one

Not ready to call?

I don’t know if I need treatment.

You’re here because you know the problem is out of control. You’ve spent months if not years trying to convince yourself (and those around you) that your drug or alcohol use isn’t “that bad.”

Don’t let denial drag out the suffering. Addiction is serious. You can (and should) get help before it completely takes over your life.

I don’t know what treatment would be best.

Have you tried getting help before? If so, it’s time to follow the science. The most effective process involves detox, rehab and outpatient treatments.

Don’t be overwhelmed! All you have to do now is call to talk about where you’re at. You’ll take it one step at a time from there. Before you know it, you’ll be sober. You can do this!

I can’t convince my loved one to go.

Even if you’re feeling powerless, there’s always hope! Donny, our dedicated ARISE interventionist, can talk to you today about your options. Following his advice, three of every four people come directly to treatment.

I'm not sure if you can help.

Feelings of doubt and helplessness are part of addiction, but you can find hope here. Our treatment is backed by research partnerships with two universities and hundreds of online reviews. From the Washington Post to CNN to Vice News, our expertise is trusted by the top news sources, as well as professional athletes.

The fact is — thousands of people across the country are living sober, productive lives after their time here. You deserve the same chance.

Now is not a good time.

You may worry about missing out on family or work, but the truth is you’re missing out now when your thoughts are preoccupied on your next fix or you’re too sick or high to show up.

Your job is guaranteed by law. And, your spouse, parents and kids all need you sober.

I have more questions.

It’s normal to have tons of questions, especially about your specific situation, insurance or how it all works. Why not get your questions answered now?

Let's talk through this together.
